A workshop, "New Perspectives on Pathobiology of Coral Reef Organisms," 
will be presented at the 8th International Coral Reef Symposium, 24-29 June 
1996 in Panama City, Panama.  This one-day workshop will be held mid-week 
during the symposium and will provide a forum for education and 
communication in the field of pathobiology as it relates to the study of 
diseases in algae, invertebrates, and vertebrates of tropical marine 
ecosystems.  The workshop will consist of short presentations on diseases 
and research topics, hands-on discussion/demonstration sessions of methods 
and techniques in histopathology, microbiology, and parasitology, and a 
discussion on physical/chemical factors causing or mediating diseases in 
these organisms. 

Participants are encouraged to provide short seminars on topics in their 
area(s) of expertise, as well as to contribute examples of their own 
disease research "problems" for consultation.  Participants are also 
encouraged to submit papers on diseases of tropical marine organisms for 
presentation during a contributed paper session at the symposium, which 
will be published in the symposium proceedings.
